Loved this. It grabbed me from the get go and I didn't want to put it down.
I don't think I've ever read anything like it and I can not wait to read the sequel

If I could rate this higher than five, I would. This book was a beautiful experience and I really recommend it. It explores themes such as gender and class differences. Tokuda wove a stunning story that everyone should read.

this was a fun time but i don’t feel like the characters got enough development and that the romance developed super quickly, it all felt quite surface level

but i did love the genderfluid mc and the queer normative world, i just wish they were explored more as most things were just told to us with little backstory
